This is my first String Quartet. Subtitled "Night Quartet," it began as a very short solo violin piece I'd written called "Night Sonata" which I expanded into a quartet (2 violins, viola and cello). The viola was the hardest to fit since I don't play viola and had trouble deciding whether it should follow the cello or the violin. Nor do I play cello, but I understand how bass guitar fits in our band.
In the end I think it worked. I'm learning theory and composition on my own a little at a time and am understanding more and more as I go along. I'd really appreciate any feedback, good or not so good. Thanks.
